Taste of Perth is an interesting event in that it gives you the opportunity to try a number of mini dishes from several restaurants across Perth which gives you an idea of the type of food you would expect if you dined at those restaurants. I particularly enjoyed the dishes at Bib & Tucker but the others were solid without being spectacular. There’s also exposure for several artisan producers, wineries, and other retailers to showcase their products. I hope you had an equally enjoyable time and if you missed out, then you’ll have to wait for next year’s event to see what you’re missing out on.
The desserts are a bit pricey but that’s the price you pay for indulgence. The caramel sandwich is delicious, a lovely cronut sandwiching the smooth creamy salted caramel gelato which goes down a treat. The whipped cream with salted caramel sauce is delicious and the dessert, while filling, is not sickening or dominated by too much caramel. I can see this being a hit in summer but any weather is good for gelato, right?

Koko Black’s new Summer Oasis range introduces patrons to two new items – salted caramel iced chocolate and, mango and vanilla ice cream spectacular. Today I returned to try the latter after enjoying the former last week. A very tasty, vanilla flecked ice cream combines superbly with the delicious refreshing mango coulis. The crunch provided by the caramelised wafer on top of the ice cream and the crunch of the coconut crumble at the base of the glass add different textures, flavours, and levels of sweetness to make this an excellent dessert for summer. I really enjoyed it.
Koko Black’s new Summer Oasis range introduces patrons to two new items – salted caramel iced chocolate and, mango and vanilla ice cream spectacular. Tough choice but I went with the former. The first suck gives a bitter aftertaste, with high cocoa content chocolate used in making the iced hot chocolate. This is counteracted with the creamy vanilla ice cream, sweeter chocolate flakes, and of course, the caramel. It’s a very satisfying and decadent dessert that is also very filling. Probably for the price of a milkshake elsewhere, you can enjoy this piece of oasis in summer. I loved it and was just what I needed.

It’s been some years since I last visited and after the first bite, I knew what I was missing – amazingly delicious, crispy yummy waffles. With several varieties to choose from, I opted for the strawberry waffle with chocolate sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This is a feel good dessert and I loved every bite of it. Cash only.
A Fish Called Inglewood offers patrons a casual restaurant serving an array of different seafood dishes at affordable prices. I had a lovely entree of crispy crumbed crab and corn croquettes with oozing cheese. Despite the slight richness from the corn and cheese, the spicy ketchup was a fantastic touch to add a spicy element. For mains, I enjoyed a lovely juicy piece of seared salmon and it was served with a cold oven roasted vegetable array with moist, fresh, creamy avocado. The cold vegies may seem a little jarring but for the warm weather, it goes nicely. For dessert, we skipped the home made ice cream sticks and instead took home a tub of home made mango ice cream. The ice cream had a lovely mango flavour and was smooth and creamy. It’s lovely to see a casual relaxed place serving quality food with friendly service to boot.
Cuisine: Frozen Yoghurt, Dessert Location: Subiaco, Rokeby Road When I got an invite to the opening of Menchies first store in Perth, I had to ask myself who on earth is Menchies? Menchies are a US chain started by a husband and wife team in 2007 that offer frozen yogurt. […]
Noodle Forum specialise in making noodles by hand on a daily basis and then incorporating the noodles into a variety of dishes which you can enjoy in comfortable surrounds or takeaway if you wish. I ordered the crispy chicken fillet noodle with satay sauce which was crispy for sure, but tender chicken on the inside. The thinnish noodles were delicious and enjoyed with the excellent satay sauce, crispy crackers, spring onions, cucumber and fried shallots. A delicious meal which is evident by the business of the restaurant. It obviously has a loyal band of followers.
